Couponing for the Rest of Us: The Not-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More
by Kasey Knight Trenum
If you’ve seen extreme couponing on television, then you might feel overwhelmed at the idea of buying in bulk. Author Kasey Knight Trenum has created a Christian based book called Couponing For the Rest Of Us. She turns frugal shopping into a fun experience for her readers and encourages “sensible stockpiling.” Her definition of stockpiling is buying what you need and will use in the next three months. You’ll need a rather large pantry or storage system for the task! She even suggests placing single shelves over bathroom doors to add a little extra storage. Since I live in California where everything is earthquake safe…you will not stockpiles above my doorframes!
Couponing for the Rest of Us: The Not-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More is not for everyone, and in fact, it’s not for me. While my initial attraction was to become a better steward of money, I quickly realized that the price I’d pay is being a steward of my time. Searching, clipping and filing systems for coupons are best left to professionals, and I’m simply not one of them. Enjoy the book…it’s well written, filled with valuable information and fun to read.
